Cambridge Pre-U

The Faculty of Arts and Science grants credit for Cambridge Pre-U courses. A maximum of 18.0 credit units may be granted. 

Undergraduate Admission will assess students' Cambridge Pre-U courses to determine whether or not Queen's credits will be granted. In order to have your courses assessed, you must ensure that Undergraduate Admission receives an official copy of your final results from the Exam Board(s). Undergraduate Admission will not request this on your behalf.

In order to be considered for Queen's credit, students entering the Faculty of Arts & Science must achieve a grade of M2 or higher in their Cambridge Pre-U courses.
